Product Info

The GNU Rider's Choice ASS C2 PBTX Snowboard uses asymmetry to better enhance your body's natural turning mechanics, with a deeper sidecut on the heelside for improved and simplified turn initiation. The core uses FCS Certified wood in three strategic locations to soften harsh landings, increase ollie power, and improve strength without adding weight. Lucky for you the GNU Rider's Choice ASS C2 PBTX Snowboard was made with Eco-Unreal Construction - meaning that even the top sheet and base material were constructed without harsh toxins or chemicals. Ride whatever the weather throws your way on the GNU Rider's Choice ASS C2 PBTX Snowboard.

Product Details

Rocker Type

C2 BTXSolid tip and tail pressured camber for power, pop, precision and end-to-end stability is combined with a medium amount of rocker between your feet for float, carving and edge hold.

Flex

Flex Rating: 5.5 - 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)A medium to medium-stiff flex ideal for a wide variety of conditions, from groomed runs to powder.

Shape

A.S.S. Pickle TechnologyAsymmetric Symmetric Synchronization uses asymmetry in the board's sidecut (deeper heelside sidecut), wood core components (asymmetric wood lamination for softer heelside flex), contact angles (power serration on heelside and fine serration on toeside, short heelside edge contact and longer toeside contact) and tip and tail design to make riding a whole lot easier. The board harmonizes with your bodies natural asymmetry and the unique toeside and heelside snowboard activation mechanics.

Core

Miraculous Aspen SpineThe strong, powerful center beam of all Gnu cores.

Powerful Golden POP-lar Toe SideThis light, lively wood reduces the snowboards weight while adding a crisp pop.

Amazing PaulowniaThis energy regenerative wood is GNU's lightest and smoothest core material that significantly reduces vibrations and dampens harsh landings.

FSC Certified Wood CoresFSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.

Laminates

Bi ax / Tri axThis is a glass and fiber reinforcement combination to give the snowboard a long life and plenty of pop.

Sidewalls

UHMW Sintered SidewallsUltra High Molecular Weight exterior sidewalls made from soy-based elastomer are laminated to five internal wood layers for totally bombproof sidewalls.

Birch Internal Sidewalls

UHMW Tip and Tail Impact Protection

Base

Eco-Sublimation Sintered BaseThis base material was made through an environmentally-friendly process without the use of toxic solvents or curtain coats. Compression hardened amorphous UHMW skived from the billet to create the toughest, fastest, best wax holding base material around. Slide best and fastest when waxed regularly to match local snow conditions.

Die-cut BaseBase color displayed may not be available. Base colors may vary.

Edges

Magne-Traction™Strategically located serrations on your edges that create confidence building, fatigue-reducing, edge hold all over the mountain especially on hardpack and ice.

Topsheet

Eco-Sublimation PBT TopsheetThis is a unique water-based graphic process that uses no toxic solvents or curtain coats in the manufacturing process. In exchange, you have a durable, classy looking top sheet that was made environmentally-friendly.
